Worcester Receives State Grant for Removal of Dam

Thursday, January 16, 2014

 

Worcester has been awarded a state grant to be used on the removal of a city dam, according to an announcement by Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) on Wednesday. The grant was part of $13.5 million in funding given to 17 communities across Commonwealth for dam and seawall repairs and removal. The state funding will be matched by federal dollars that have already been awarded.

“Aging infrastructures is a reality and major concern for many communities across the Commonwealth,” Senator Moore said. “These funds will help the City of Worcester, and the other awarded communities, restores the community’s natural resources and increase overall health. The repair and removal of these declining infrastructures will help cities and towns address safety concerns and properly prepare and plan before the next super storm Sandy or large winter storms like Nemo last year.”

Worcester received $240,000 for the removal of the Poor Farm Dam, an obsolete structure, currently in poor condition. The dam is located along the Worcester/Shrewsbury town line just below Route 70 and is owned by the City of Worcester.
